Woodrow Wilson senior Dennisha Page put together an incredible sprint triple this weekend, winning the 100, 200 and 400 in a meet in Delaware with two N.J. No. 1 times along with a N.J. No. 2 time.
Page won the 100 in 12.02, the 200 in 24.17 and the 400 in 57.53 at the Caravel Academy Invitational in Glasgow, Del.
What a triple!!!!!
All three times are fastest this year by a South Jersey girl. The 100 and 200 are state-bests and the 400 is second-fastest, behind only indoor Meet of Champions winner Kaira Brown of Kent Place in Summit, who ran 55.38 in a meet in Potomac, Md., this past weekend.
Page has run slightly faster in the 100 and 200 but never this early in a season. Her short sprint PRs are 11.90 and 23.99, both from last year’s Meet of Champions.
The 57.53 is a big PR, breaking her previous personal-best of 59.46, which she ran indoors at the Bennett Center winning the Group 2 sectionals this past February. Her previous outdoor 400 PR was a 1:00.46 from another meet in Delaware, the DuPont High Invite last March in Greenville, Del.
Maybe her most impressive race was the 200. Just to put a 24.17 in perspective, only nine girls in South Jersey history have ever run faster (including herself). Page is one of only six who have run sub-24.
